we have heard that a myeloma patient should have a maximum of 24 infusions in a lifetime
I too have myeloma. I have been getting the Zometa infusions since 2004 and will continue to get them for the rest of my days. I was getting them every month, and now I get them every 3 months. I have never heard of a lifetime maximum. That might be a health insurance determination since the insurance companies try to play "doctor" quite often to cut costs. I hope you do as well with the infusions as I have.
